How do I install new characters?
1. Tool assisted method
If you don't like editing text files, you may want to try VSelect
, a friendly user interface to add characters to your MUGEN roster. Note that it should support any screenpack as long as you select the proper motif.
2. Classic method
You will need to extract them from whatever kind of zip they are in and then, cut the character's folder and paste in the MUGEN folder named "chars
". Then, in the MUGEN data folder, you need to open the select.def file with a text editor.
In the select.def file, you will find Kung Fu Man. He will look like this :
To add the character you just downloaded you would put down that character's name, here is an example.
That's it, just save the file and your new character should be there when you run MUGEN. This method should work most of the time but may fail with some improperly packaged characters, please check this thread
